Golf With The Pros At The SilverRock Resort
by: Mitchell Sussman

For your next Palm Springs golf vacation, try the SilverRock Resort located in La Quinta, California.

SilverRock is one of the newest and best public courses in the Palm Springs area. Long been known as the "Golf Capital of the World," Palm Springs and the neighboring cities of La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells and Palm Desert boast over 160 golf courses.

Set against the backdrop of the Santa Rosa and Coral mountains, the SilverRock resort is a challenging desert course sprawling over 200 acres with massive native bunkers and stunning water features on no less than eight holes.

The Clubhouse, situated in the rocky outcroppings, is a charming renovation of the former working-ranch hacienda, built by the founder of Home Savings and Loan, Howard Ahmanson.

Some of the more demanding holes are the par three 8th and 17th, as well as the par four 10th and 15th all of which have water hazards.

There is also water on the second, sixth and eighteenth that require well placed approach and fairway shots.

The PGA recently inked a deal with SilverRock making it one of the host courses for the annual Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. So not only is the course, scenic and challenging while playing you can imagine yourself teeing it with Tiger and Phil.

While the PGA Tour will experience this layout from the silver tees measuring over 7,553 yards, there are five additional sets playing to as short as 4884 yards for the ladies.

There are many desert waste areas and bunkers are strategically located from tee to green.

The course has state - of - the art amenities including carts with GPS tracking for those of us who need some help in judging distance. There is also a very nice driving range and putting green.

When I played the course it was one of those perfect chamber of commerce days. Resulting in some postcard quality photos, with gorgeous backdrops and surrounding vistas.

SilverRock provides a memorable desert golfing experience on your next Palm Springs golf vacation.
